Xikunahity, the "head's soccer"

The Nambikwara warriors showed as a quick simulation of their "head's soccer", called Xikunahity. The game was created by the mythological Wazare, from the Pareci People.
I didn't make a better shot of this moment, so i aded notes (pass your mouse on the picture) to guide you to this game. There are two groups playing, and when the ball comes they had to jump on the ground and only use the head to kick. It's is amazing how strong they were doing that, cause the ball don't play high, but on the ground, as the soccer game we know.
